outside of the system or sometimes the homeless system is not meeting their needs so one of the things we did was partner with supervisor zane kim, the coalition on homeless and other groups and we had a shelter access workgroup. five nights at week people line up at glide for a handful of beds that are distributed at seven in the morning and we have a line based system and not ebility seablght to people with disabilities and many lost a job because they had to get in line to a bed or go to work. supervisor kim secured -- >> i'm sorry to interrupt. everything you're telling us is extremely important but you're speaking a little faster than the captioner can keep pace with. >> i'm sorry . that's my new york upbringing. well, if i don't -- generally i'm respective. i didn't see a timer there so i will sloaz down if that is okay. supervisor kim authored this and i think it's powerful because our office met with the coalition and met with advocacy groups and with city departments and we added a million dollars to the shelter system. this was the first time in years the mayor didn't su

. homeless families. last thursday i joined the many volunteers and like mayor newsom before me, i'm simply not satisfied with our progress. over the last 10 years residents have left the streets for permanent housing and services. and over the last seven years through our homeward bound program we have reunited several people to go in their home communities. last year there were no cuts to human health services and i was proud to get funding for other home services but but this is about better reform and innovation. last year, i invited former serious to work with our outstanding human services director and other to apply his bold ideas to homelessness and he's jumped in feetfirst. we now have everyday connect to provide a year around benefits of services. we have online portals so that no people goes hungry so long as they're on our streets. we are going to build a new 1 hundred bed facilities here in the bay area. and under a federal lifeline program a program that this supervisor has add vatd for many homeless people will receive cell phones so they can get back to their case works. sig

of the homeless people they recycle and some people don't clean up after themselves. they leave big messes and i think us being in rv's we try to contain our habitation. we have our bathroom for sanitation reasons. there is no really -- you know what? this is an idea for you guys to have more bathrooms or like out houses in some areas -- >> thank you. >> for sanitary reasons -- >> thank you. >> because a lot of the businesses won't allow to you walk in. >> thank you. thank you very much. >> [inaudible] >> thank you. thank you. >> hello. my name is isaac and i just have a couple of things that are on my mind. i was just wondering why -- okay. so the city is trying to fix the homeless issue, trying to improve the homeless shelters, and the overall aspect of the homeless, so my thing is why would the city try to push people out of their homes to make it worse because if we're trying to fix one thing it's another thing, and this doesn't make any sense because there is already overflow in the shelter system and this would make it worse so i think you guys should try to fix the shelter system b

that are impacting neighbors and the community, but unquestionably because of homelessness in san francisco there are people that reside in their vehicles and have the opportunity to work with families living in their vehicles and others and i know the coalition and individuals that are impacted are here and i am interested in hearing their perspective going forward. some information i want to share our city's homeless count was done and we had 500 individuals dispersed in the city that were involved and identify vehicles that people were living on. imon of them were knocked on. nobody flashed a flashlight but to identify those vehicles. that data is verified by a third party so it's carefully reviewed so we will not have that until the 20 of march -- >> excuse me. i have a question. who is verifying the data? >> it's a third party contractor and megan owens from the board is responsible it and they have a haven'tor working with them and these numbers are important and they have an impact on the resources that we get and it's actually a federal requirement to do the homeless count once ev

housing for individuals who were formerly homeless. but as you start to look at the categories, a lower income and middle income folks, we're not building for that need at all. i think we need to do more to make sure we are supporting that type of housing. one initiative i started working on was a student teacher housing which is directly in that income, essential employee housing. we will be releasing an rfp, which is really exciting, because we want to keep people engaged. we have to push for more. need to pass another affordable housing bond. it has come up two more times, and i hope we have the political will to support that again. >> what are your ideas about dealing with the issue of homelessness? supervisor kim: homelessness is a tough issue. we have amazing organizations that run incredible centers and services, and also supports the board of housing for the formerly homeless. not just providing housing, but safe housing and services -- whether it is job training for drug rehab or mental health. there are two categories of homelessness. this is on the end of been able to afford

about people on tour trying to find help for homeless kids. who does that anymore? we found the people and we're going to talk to them when we come back p.m. >> it's hard, i might have to go to the a homeless shelter and i don't want to go. >> i'm like why? and he said i can't explain it to you right now. while your carpets may appear clean. it's scary how much dirt your vacuum can leave behind. add resolve deep clean powder before you vacuum to expel the dirt within your carpets. resolve's deep clean powder is moist. absorbing and lifting three times more dirt than vacuuming alone. leaving you with a carpet that's truly fresh and clean. don't just vacuum clean. resolve clean. when you consider the greatest minds of all-time, each of them started as a child a one point with nothing more than a pencil and a piece of paper. my name is adam braun. i'm the founder and ceo of pencils of promise. you look at some of the most amazing monuments and buildings and inventions, when they are distilled down to where they began, their actual true core, it was just as a pencil sketch. educati

't really see themselves as homeless so my operating hypothesis on this new outreach it wouldn't be necessarily productive that most people would get the flier and i will get my four wheels going and roll. the under part of the hypothesis was to think about who would be most likely to respond and i was wrong, so the four people directly contacted me. i had contact with them result of the fliering and outreach, and there are two more -- i am just having hard time getting in touch with back and forth with phone calls. of the four people three have been full time employed. however, they're not earning enough money to obtain housing in the city and county of san francisco. all of them are healthy in the majority of ways that we assess health, and all of them very much would like to get out of the vehicle and obtain clean safe affordable housing, so this is quite a challenge for our team as you might expect, and this is where the addition of stabilization units which are sro units paid by the department of public health enable us to hold somebody for a period of time, help them

community-based services for seniors. >> what are your ideas on dealing with the issue of homelessness? >> i think homelessness has been this structural problem, not just in our city but other metropolitan areas, and i think, at least at the short term level, we have made some progress ensuring there is cleaner and safer shelters so people have somewhat of a transition to transition from homelessness to a stable housing, but when we look at the numbers of affordable housing units that might allow people to get more on their feet or even work force development or educational opportunities to help a mother who is homeless, for example, to get on their feet, we need much more of that, and we cannot cut programs that will increase the roles of the homeless. i believe that the project homeless connect and some of the projects created by previous administrations are not enough. we need to look at transitional housing but also continuing the type of support to help people get back on their feet. the job training and other types of programs that the mayor's office of economic and workforce of all me

that there is a chance as a result of this legislation that we will see more people who are homeless on the street as opposed to more people who are homeless or housed in their vehicles and from a population and health perspective i would consider that to be a negative outcome, but it is perhaps an una vaidable one and i think it returns the search for affordable housing. i am available for any questions. >> thank you. i think one of the things that is interesting as you talked about in terms of people actually responding. i think this is one of the things we talked about with bevin and for the most part it's a population generally difficult to reach out to and accept services and i think you spoke a little bit to that and i think the fact that we have folks that reached out and desire to see a change i think is positive. i will agree we're always going to be chasing after resources we need for folks who need it so i think that is something that we will have to continue to do and i think this will highlight the need that is part of that that we haven't seen in the past and i think that is some

, yeah. i have personal experience being homeless, and this was before cell phones and one could spend an entire day trying to get one phone call through to somebody finding the change, finding a phone that worked, finding time, and finally getting through to the person that you need to speak to, so cell phones, yes. it's great to get these tools into people's hands for so many reasons, not just housing, for other forms of support and other things that are human rights. and then finally i wanted just -- i didn't get this impression from you but there seems to be an impression in the community that people are use drugs and alcohol are inherently incapable of being responsible people and i want to make sure you are dispelling that in some ways when you put together these programs and not all people that drink do it to excess and they can still manage lives quite well. i know that there's an organization in the city called the drug users union which is trying to communicate and educate the public that not people that use drugs are bad and drugs are not all bad and drinking alcohol and th

homeless problem. there's a lot of people on the waiting list, if they aren't living in affordable housing they are doubling or tripling up or sadly living on the street or in shelters. >> and the misconception is that it's middle aged older men who are those that are homeless but it just breaks your heart when i see children inside of a car and that's their living quarters. i mean, the homeless families, you know, we can't forget about them. there's a big number of them out there. >> with the downturn in the economy, there's really a significant number, increasing the number of homeless families. it's been a huge problem in the bay area and throughout california and the country this year. >> you're continuing to build. >> we are continuing to build. the loss of redevelopment agencies is going to have a significant impact on the capacity of all of us in california who build affordable housing and building new housing. >> some municipalities, morgan hill, if a developer goes into a community, a certain percentage has to be affordable housing. some areas do that. >> that's an ordinance calle

teeth were ravaged and he felt he didn't have a red letter "h" for homeless and he wanted people to see a different person and working through project connect he worked to get dentures which will change his life. the response to wolf -- as you know it was controversial. people called it pubbies for pand handlers and we know they do that because they don't have income and can't make it through the month so i see this as a valid alternative for people but we were opposed for the people of the ethical treatment of animals and they offered the city money to not give the program because they said we were giving dogs to mentally ill people and people that see themselves wanting to save animals live would rather see it killed instead of placed in homelessness to overcome their behavioral issues so right now we are seeking a foundation to help us with this and it's been challenging but we believe this year we will start it and so many people approached us and want to participate in the program. next i want to talk about wet housing and i am an advocate and if you google 1811 eastlake in seat

the entire community over and invite the coalition of homelessness and realize they have value. i talk about the coalition a lot because we have been polarized and you need your critics close to you and they have a voice. our shelter beds are pretty much full. if you take on to that area and is difficult because muni doesn't run out there and we have 234 stabilization beds that are sro and stabilization beds as you know are an important tool for long-term street dwellers and they don't want to go into the shelter so you need a stabilization room so we have 234. we don't have more than five at a given time so barbara garcia from the health department, trent from human services, myself and engaged with the mayor's budget office and i can't respond to the reelection. i can't change what is going on division or any of the neighborhoods unless i have a tool of stabilization beds and one of the challenges is people are not as successful as they are being in that housing that's the population that should be able to move up and until we make more units available we don't have a exit strategy for
